On Thursday, March 10, 2022, the first edition of the Hypergrowth Awards took place, organized by our Rise Partners teams.
This private event, gathering all the ecosystem of the Southern Region (Investors, Startups, Mentors, Partners...) has notably allowed to make many important announcements.
Among them, we were pleased to announce the launch of an international program for our supported startups: the idea is to enable them to quickly and easily establish themselves in countries where they have strong development potential.
Offering a solid international ecosystem in 2022 was one of Rise Partners' ambitions and it is now a reality!
A first partnership has just been signed with Helsinki Partners, the public hub of the city of Helsinki.
This agreement allows our startups to benefit from free operational, legal and tax assistance and advice to set up their business in Finland, but also to meet the key people and companies in their market to ensure a sustainable development.
With more than 3000 startups, Finland is one of the most competitive countries in terms of support for these young companies. The startup culture is well anchored and the government deploys considerable means to help entrepreneurs.
"We are excited about this first partnership with Helsinki Partners, which will allow us to open up the international market for our startups. We have already identified some relevant startups to start this program as soon as possible with Finland. It's a country that is very focused on entrepreneurship and tech," says Jonathan Laroussinie, founder and president of Rise Partners.
Other partnerships are under discussion at Rise Partners, notably in New York, Milan, London, Dusseldorf, Dubai, Kuala Lumpur... They will be announced in the coming weeks!
